Year of Foundation: 1991
The Association of Hungarian Writers aims to provide a forum for creative writers of a humanistic frame of mind, those who have produced - and are producing - works of European standard which enrich the national and universal human culture alike. Its mission is to support and unite Hungarian literary endeavours both at home and beyond the country’s borders. The Association uses its own resources to help promote the creative process, to assist the writing, publication, distribution and presentation of new works. The Society has been publishing the monthly review for more than seven years under the title of "Lyukasóra" (Free Period), which is also on TV. Poetry, prose, and essays written by members and a wide cicrle of authors can be found in it.
